Episodes

This week, we talk about the modern classic, In Christ Alone and the apparent controversy that has sprung up around some of its most powerful lines. Should we really be singing about the wrath of God? What actually happened at the cross? And can writing a hymn really be as simple as grabbing a cup of coffee together?

We're back on the hymns this week with the somewhat controversial song, Nearer My God to Thee. In this episode, you'll find several sinking ships (literally), and a Cliffnotes introduction to Unitarianism as the ladies discuss this poetic hymn.

Is it ok to sing hymns potentially written by unbelievers if the lyrics are biblical? Is Nearer My God to Thee poetic or merely sentimental? And was there room on that board for Leonardo DiCaprio? What do you think?

How closely linked is this genre with civil rights movement? And how much of different non-church music styles is it ok to adopt in our corporate worship?
